On April 8, 2013, Atkins North America, Inc. (Atkins) conducted an emergency archaeological survey for the proposed City of San Antonio (COSA)-sponsored Leon Creek Emergency Bank Stabilization project in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. The project will include the removal of concrete that has been dumped along the north side of the Leon Creek channel as well as approximately 500 feet of immediate stabilization improvements along Leon Creek’s south channel wall. The project area is defined as the footprint of the proposed stabilization improvements along the north and south channel walls of Leon Creek. The proposed project is located on COSA-owned land and is locally funded; therefore, compliance with the Antiquities Code of Texas is required. In addition, the project will require a Section 404 permit from the United States Army Corps of Engineers, and therefore, work was conducted in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The entirety of the project area was subjected to a pedestrian survey. The lack of soil within the well-defined, entrenched channel of Leon Creek negated the need for subsurface investigations. Archeological investigations for this project were conducted under TAC Permit #6518. This report presents the results of these investigations.
No cultural resources were located or recorded during the course of the survey. Based on the results of this work, Atkins archeologists recommend no further archeological work for this project prior to its construction. All project records and photographs will be curated at the Center for Archeological Research at The University of Texas San Antonio.
